Parks officials say the damage is akin to carving seven basketball courts in the middle of the forest.“The grove has gotten hammered,” Silver said. “The sheer number of people tromping off trail has completely flattened the vegetation in some areas.”It wasn’t always that way.
Loved to death. Reminds me of the folks who want to swim with Dolphins, who “rescue” animals that don’t need rescuing, etc. There is no solution to this.
